Welcome to Class 1

I hope you have all had a relaxing half-term break. The children had a fabulous first half term in Year 1 and have learnt so much already. I was so impressed with how eager the children were to return to school and get learning. By working hard both in the classroom and during zoom lessons, the children have already made so much progress. I am excited to see them continue to do so over the course of the Autumn 2 term.

During the Autumn 2 term, Year 1 children will continue to access a play-based learning environment, as well as focussed group tasks, to support their transition back to school. Through this approach to learning, the children will be able to consolidate and develop their knowledge and skills in a range of subjects, whilst also exploring new and exciting topics.

This half term, Year 1 will have PE on Mondays, Wednesday and Friday. On these days, your child must come into school in sportswear for the full day. PE sessions will be outdoors, so please ensure that their sports clothing is weather appropriate. If your child doesn’t come into school in a full PE kit on these days, we will give you a call in the morning so that it can be brought to school. During PE lessons this half term, the children will be doing dance, multi-skills and football.

At the end of Year 1, the children will be expected to complete the Key Stage 1 Phonics Screening Check. We will be working hard throughout the year to ensure that all children are ready for the check. Reading with your child every day will help your child’s phonics knowledge develop and will help them to make progress in all academic subjects.

If you wish to discuss your child’s learning in Year 1, please email You will receive a response as soon as possible, within the school day.
